In such environment, energy management systems (SGE) are becoming really important by supporting customers in their path and goal to reach energy efficiency.
Advantech has always been dedicated to explore new technologies with a special attention to the research and design of industrial products, and this is the reason why Advantech is providing new rugged and highly reliable system components that are not only environmentally friendly, but also power efficient with control technology. These products can be applied to a variety of power and energy markets, including: renewable solar and wind power generation, nuclear simulation, substation automation systems, electrical car charging station solutions, and recently building energy saving systems.
But in order to be more and more competitive and really focused, Advantech has recently closed a new partnership with two companies with whom is possible now to offer a complete SGE vertical solution featured by a dedicated energy SW.
Thanks to the partnership with ADV Service as a System Integrator and ONIT Group as an Expert Software House, we have recently implemented a SGE solution featuring our custom UNO-2362T Gateway with EKI-1221 bundled with On.Energy SW platform released by ONIT Group. In such a context, it was extremely important that all the processes guaranteed an effective, reliable and precise system of measuring and accounting.
The system helps to maximize the efficiency of the industrial process, including the equipment for measuring the energy consumption and the centralized units for data collection and process, and enables to identifyand manage possible anomalies.
And in fact this system, named ADV Energy Gateway, helps energy managers to study and identify the areas with the most intensive energy flows inside the factory in order to propose suitable solutions aimed to a continuous improvement and a real cost reduction.
ADV EnergyGateway includes two main parts: the first one is related to the meters installed in the critical points of consumption connected to the industrial UNO-2362T Gateway by Advantech, that makes the collection and the sampling of the data possible; while the second one is represented by On.Energy web platform, developed by Onit Group, which enables the processing of data by the end user.
The solution enables the monitoring of consumption including its associated energy factors, data analysis through energy index and KPIs, performance control via an advanced system of alarms and messages, development of an industrial energy accounting that provides analysis by cost center, profitability evaluation by product type and efficiency check of the machines and equipment used in the production cycle.
The complete solution is implemented by ADV Service who is in charge, as Advantech system integrator, of the supply and the installation of all equipment and devices (including sensors and meter) and the final implementation of the system including the management of the platform at customer site.
Once again, Advantech proved his commitment towards his mission of Enabling an Intelligent Planet by cooperating with technological and strategic partners and thus providing a complete solution for the energy efficiency industry, helping energy managers to study and identify most energy intensive areas in factory.
